Caribbean is our entry level swimming pool and great choice for those looking for a high quality long lasting pool with minimum investment. Caribbean is a solid durable pool with minimal bells and whistles but strong in the important areas that count. Add a heavy duty liner and base equipment pack for a pool that will last decades. In fact I have seen this exact model last 20 years!
Caribbean is a great choice for those building a deck around their pool. No need to pay for buttress free oval design or resin top rails that will never be seen. That savings can go toward deck materials or pool accessories.
This American made pool is produced by the largest above ground pool makers in the world and is a bargain compared to many other economically priced brands. We have been in the pool business for almost 30 years and can honestly say that this pool will typically last twice as long as the similarly priced imported models. Imported pools are very thin and flimsy, in fact there is 50lbs. less steel in the average 24' pool. This should be enough reason to buy American!
Key Features: All steel construction, galvanized and coated for great rust protection. 52" wall height, 6" wide top ledges, large wide mouth skimmer opening, 30 year warranty. Traditional buttress side supports. Many sizes available.
Advantages: Low cost, Long lasting pool, Great for decks, 30 year warranty.
Salt Systems: Caribbean pool is not warrantied for use with a salt system, however we have run a salt system on this model for years without any signs of additional corrosion.
Round Pools: Round pools have no side supports and take up only a few more inches than their advertised size. Example: A 24' pool takes up about 24' 6" in total space. Round pools are less expensive than oval shaped pools because there are far fewer pieces and less steel required to construct them. Round pools are much easier to install than oval pools. It takes a professional twice as long to install an oval pool as it does a similarly sized round pool. Because of double the work to install the oval pool, the cost to hire an installer is about double as well. Round pools are easy to install on a flat hard surface like a concrete slab or patio but the slab must be level.
Round Pool Pros: Price is much cheaper the similarly sized oval pool. Ease of installation. Installs on easily on concrete or other hard surfaces.
Oval Pools: All oval pools have some sort of buttress or side support system to keep the straight sides up and straight. There are two basic designs, traditional buttress and buttress free. Caribbean pool uses traditional buttress design. Traditional buttress design takes up the largest amount of yard space as the braces or support beams stick out almost three feet on each side and only on the straight sides. This design uses the least amount of steel and therefore the most economical. You cannot leave these support off during installation.
If space is at a premium you should consider moving up to a buttress free model pool. Buttress free side supports stick out about a foot and a half per side and have a much sleeker appearance. If you are planning a deck that encompasses the pool or you won't see the buttresses, Caribbean may be the money saving model for you.
Oval pools are not recommended for installation on concrete or other hard surface. Their design requires the concrete to be cut or trenched in several places for proper installation. This is typically more trouble than it's worth, however it can be done.
Oval Pool Pros: Desirable traditional oval pool shape, fit nicely into narrow spaces.
Caribbean can be buried partially into the earth. We all know that most backyards and other installation sites are not always level. It is not uncommon to see pools partially in the ground because of a sloped yard etc. If you wish to bury your pool 2+ feet down into the ground, than the Bermuda LX is the pool for you.
When installing a pool in your backyard be sure to remove all vegetation before installation. You can install directly onto the soil, but sand may be better if the earth is hard or rocky. It is never recommended to use carpet, foam, plastic sheeting, roofing paper or some other material under the pool liner. If you like or need additional protection like most people, be sure to use a breathable material to allow moisture or condensation to escape or risk premature corrosion. You should use Armor Shield or Gorilla Pad for this. These pool liner protectors will prevent punctures due to sharp objects like glass and protect from critters like mole, groundhogs and insects. Armor Shield also extends the warranty on your new pool liner. Do not use sand or earth under the liner if installing on concrete as rains will wash it away. Always use Armor Shield pool floor protection and always use the preformed pool base cove when installing on concrete like surfaces. If you do not, you run the risk of puncturing your new vinyl liner.
Self Installation: Most above ground swimming pools are installed by the consumer. To help guide you through the process, each pool comes with an installation DVD as well as a paper instruction booklet. The instruction manuals are available for viewing under the "Resources" tab for each corresponding pool model.
Most importantly, PoolsAboveGround.com has 30 years experience with swimming pool installations. We share our knowledge, experience and advise with all of our customers, and offer unlimited assistance and support throughout your installation process. If you have questions, we have the best answers.
Professional Installation: PoolsAboveGround.com no longer installs pools directly, although we have a recommended installer database that my be of assistance in locating a professional. Because of the vast size of this country, it may be hard to find you an installer through our network. In that case we recommend searching your local Craigslist or classified ads for pool installers. Another great resource is local pool stores. Even if the stores do not sell pools they often know of installers in that area. Lastly there is the yellow pages and super pages. These too can be useful for finding the help your are looking for.
